Baw Baw has a dusting of snow today 11.4.20. Their cameras keep working. Even if we all get taken hostage by aliens, It is reassuring to know we can still get a good indication of snow conditions at Baw Baw. However the entire Baw Baw N.P. has been closed by Parks Vic. for the foreseeable future due to CV 19 restrictions . All Alpine resorts in VIC. have been closed to the public too.

Bogong: EDIT. I just realised this is a Baw Baw thread, however did we get onto something like this? Never mind I'll leave it here anyway.
Gotta love a good thread hijack! :evil:

Bogong: Those detention laws have been on the books for at least three decades, under governments of both main parties, it's just that are only used exceptionally rarely. However I was surprised to learn that both the states and the Commonwealth had powers on the books to shut down all sorts of businesses and activities without the need to pass special laws, they can effectively do it by decree. I suspect the laws are left over from World War Two, but they haven't been used for 75 years because there hasn't been a need to use them before now. We live in a liberal democracy where freedom of expression and ideas is assumed by everyone. And 90% of the time, there is an effective parliamentary opposition to whichever pack of drongos that the people have elected into state or federal government. It's comforting that most (but not quite all) politicians from both main parties have dropped "petty political point scoring" (as Sir Keir Starmer, the new UK Labour Party leader said) and they are working together for the common good. Having these powers on the books is no danger to the liberal democracy and freedom of thought, speech and action we have in Australia and I am totally confident that things will return to our usual dysfunctional normality once "the current malady" has passed and the special powers will never be used again unless we have a really major war or plague.

Yes, back to all things Baw Baw like :-)

nezumi: Ahh yes, I am very disappointed to be missing out on the fun that is 500-1,000 dead per day, with 20% of the infected being the medical personnel attempting to save the lives of the ignorant and the innocent alike. Woe is me, won't someone take up arms against this injustice that is being inflicted upon us by our overbearing police state???
I understand the sentiments you are expressing albeit with sarcasm and a degree of facetiousness. I do not wish to have anybody succumb to this contagious illness . What will be interesting is whether such draconian powers will be repealed or not after the vaccine is becomes available . After 9/11 the Lib Labs waived through laws that are diametrically antithetical to the basic notion of habeus corpus. Those laws are still there on the Federal statute books. You can still be locked up on the suspicion of intending to do something bad for up to three months and not be told what it is you have done wrong , have no contact with anyone , no lawyer or family may be informed of your location and you cannot have the matter heard before a court of your peers i.e a jury where the alleged crime can be proved with evidence before an impartial judge. There must be a balance in everything, the middle way grasshopper.

Sorry, T, wrong call. Stirling often gets that marginal Westerly Mt. Buller weather. And it's a long way to the top, where snow is often better, but really exposed to weather. BB can do well from a Southerly blast but December skiing was an unexpected bonus. Might cross paths next year.

chriscross: A ski in December! Some will say it's not really Summer but it's a first for me. Rain on the way up but just cloud and wind at car park. 5cm or so in the Village, 10-12 up near the summit. Went straight up under summit T-bar, checked the cairn, then left to 5 ways junction. Full cover apart from a couple of drainage and melt points. Out around McMillan's the trail was sheltered from the fierce wind and the snow quality was best. Tea at Bloomfield's picnic table, then back up to Champagne for some turns which proceeded better than expected in shallow, soft snow. Lunch at the forgotten hut. Back up near the summit, sure enough a bunch of Indian guys came stomping along the middle of the trail. What can you say? It's December, goodwill to men and all that. Speaking thereof, Christmas greetings to forum members.
I am jealous. I went to Mt. Stirling and it was marginal rock hopper stuff. Not really skiable . I scratched my skis on barely hidden rocks and it was not safe to descend, turn or snow plough stop at all. It rained a lot too. It also became a right mess after the horse riding people came right up the middle of the track!

After my Digital SLR camera stopped co operating I reached for my mob. ph. to take some low quality photos, such as this one on 9/11/19 at Mt. Baw Baw near the summit.

Throwing it down at Mt. Baw Baw : big ,fat , dry flakes of snow. Sat. morning ,Nov. 9th 2019. The ski run notice board near the 'Skiosk' said "No snow" for all the trails. That was a laugh!. It was very good to ski on with almost complete, deep cover. It was "better than some days in winter with a good base" as one lass who works there said to me, as I skied out from the car park to the XC ski trails.

It was better skiing yesterday on 9/11/19 than it was on 9/10/19. You had to be there at Baw Baw.
